It was a good movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Saw the Captain America movie last night. Lots of action. Enjoyed it.

Scarlett Johansson did well for me. Needed a few more shots of her ass, though.

I say this after every movie but I'm pretty sure--even upon further reflection--that this will still be my favorite Marvel movie years from now.  It had all the requisite modern-day super soldier action sequences but it also had a healthy dose of 1970's political spy thriller (in addition to excellent character arcs).  Chris Evans solidly leads the movie but there are a bunch of great supporting roles (SLJ, ScarJo, Robert Redford, Anthony Mackie) and a couple of players from the previous Captain America (which I will not name for the people who still haven't seen it).   Going to be a good summer for movies!

I was actually quite happy that there were some gratuitous shots of Evan's ass. Normally they forget the hot guy fan service if the movie isn't directed by a gay guy.

But yeah, that probably meant fewer shots featuring ScarJo.

Noah didn't sink (haha) and will do fine on DVD. I'm actually surprised an Aronofsky movie did so well.

IMHO, the best Marvel movie is either Iron Man or The Avengers.....but yes, Winter Soldier was damn awesome.
 
2014-04-06 12:00:42 PM  
i hear it doesn't rely on CGI as much, which is a good thing.
 
2014-04-06 12:02:06 PM  

Mugato: I don't now what genius thought a movie about Noah's Ark was going to make bank.


It's already made 178 million on a budget of 125 million.  It'll turn a tidy profit when it's all said and done.
 
2014-04-06 12:02:35 PM  
Saw Nymphomaniac Vol 2 on VOD. Even if you've seen the first one, skip the second. Really not worth it. Also the last minute or so the movie went black so I 'm pretty sure the last minute was censored for the US, or else von Trier made a really really shiatty ending to the movie.
 
2014-04-06 12:09:49 PM  
Saw the first Cap and found it kind of boring and dragging towards the end. Enjoyed all the other Marvel movies so would you recommend seeing this one?

Yep.  It's doing fine, at $150 million worldwide after two weeks.

Saw the Winter Soldier yesterday. Damn good movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The first fight with the Winter Soldier was probably my favourite part of the movie. In fact, the fight scenes were really improved from the other movies. They were brutal and acrobatic.
 
2014-04-06 12:13:50 PM  
Worth seeing in 3d?
 
2014-04-06 12:19:02 PM  
Makes sense. Modern legends resonate more than ancient ones.
 
2014-04-06 12:20:38 PM  
I saw it yesterday and it was definitely different than what I was expecting, but in a good way.

What I didn't like is that it seemed like the previews would never end.  I want to say there were 8-10 of them.  I'm glad I got to see The Guardians of the Galaxy preview full screen, but then it seemed they had to advertise for every other Disney, Marvel, and Marvel-related movie afterwards which I don't remember experiencing on previous opening weekend Marvel movies.

They thought the evangelicals would go in for some good deity genocide porn, they forgot they don't want to be entertained, they want to be persecuted so they can complain about it.

FlashHarry: i hear it doesn't rely on CGI as much, which is a good thing.


It uses a lot of CGI, but it's very well done and there's really no point where it yanks you out of the film.  The Falcoln flying scenes could have been really hokey, but they pulled it off well.

This. I imagine God is Not Dead helped steal some of the viewers, where they can see Kevin Sorbo twist his mustache while persecuting Christians in college and the brave fight against it.

Really it such a limited audience and everyone saw Noah last week who was going to see it in that audience.

That is still less pathetic an idea than that "God is Not Dead" tripe that's only is being advertised obnoxiously on YouTube. Oh boy TVs Hercules playing a goofy straw man of a liberal professor hassling some poor closeted Twinkle about his invisible wizard fetish.

Also, is it implied that Zola was the Clarivoyant? Or does Agents of Shield still really have nothing to do with the movies since they don't even seem to acknowledge each other at all, yet, except by name dropping on the show. (seriously, Marvel, just put Coulson in ONE after credits scene, and then maybe the show will have more credibility as part of the universe).

Once you factor marketing and distro that's probably not even breaking even and will need to do retardedly well internationally to make a profit.

Exactly.  The movie held itself up with characters and writing, not on special effects.  Although that's not to say they didn't make shiat blow up well, because they made shiat blow up very well, but it wasn't a crutch to hold up the movie.  It's not Shakespeare, but it's a damn good comic book movie.

/also, thank you Marvel for thinking of your female audience
//but seriously, if Thor gets a sponge bath scene why can't Cap?

I noticed this too.  Winter Soldier has the absolute best fighting scenes of any Marvel movie to date.  Black Widow's fighting scenes in Iron Man 2 were terrible; just too many damn wires.  Now she actually looks like an expertly trained master assassin.

Zola had an algorithm that predicts future threats to SHIELD/Thatotherorg

The Clairvoyant seems to be only capable of reading minds, not really the same thing. 

Everything that happened in Cap will shape the final 6 episodes of AoS, but I doubt Zola is the clairvoyant.

Bet $100 that algorithm turns out to be Ultron, or the precursor to Ultron. That other guy w/ the that thing at the end of the credits should probably have a copy of that algorithm.

WienerButt: Saw the first Cap and found it kind of boring and dragging towards the end. Enjoyed all the other Marvel movies so would you recommend seeing this one?


Definitely more action than in the first film, but it's a political thriller with lots of action, so there's going to be slow moving bits. Even in the plot exposition points, there's lots of tension and it keeps you involved.

FWIW, I loved this film, ranking it equal to Iron Man 1 and Avengers; and I hated the Winter Soldier storyline in the comics. Sebastian Stan really brought the concept to enjoyable life for me.

Also, if you're a Marvel fan, you'll get a kick out of how they do Dr. Zola in the film, although it takes a bit to get the visual to click.

Hmm.. maybe. But in the last Episode, it is pretty much spelled out that the Clarivoyant has been an Agent of Shield all this time with access to all their personality files, and can eavesdrop on them. No special ability required. I just figured, Zola's algorithm fit that bill almost perfectly.

Since it's Lars Van Trier. I'm expecting a crushingly depressing ending. (love his movies, but yeah, never any happy endings in his films)

It's almost certain that Zola is the Clairvoyant because they established last episode that the Clairvoyant gained its knowledge through analysis of SHIELD personal files.  He wasn't able to see how Coulson had been resurrected because those files had been hidden by Fury.  They didn't explicitly say this in Winter Soldier because the movie needed to be self-contained, but it's looking increasingly likely that the entire first season of AoS was an elaborate prelude to Winter Soldier.

But if the Clairvoyant is Hydra, couldn't they have accessed those files through Robert Redford.  Wouldn't he have higher clearance than Fury for file access?  It's possible that the Clairvoyant is completely separate from the Hydra stuff.  Although that would suck since it would mean a second entire group of SHIELD infiltrators.

For the record, I loved Winter Soldier.  If Tom Clancy wrote a superhero movie, it would probably be this.

Yep.  The Clairvoyant not only isn't a super powered person, everything points to Zola as only Zola had access to everything except those specific files.  It could also prove to be why Fury wants Coulson rogue: his one good eye.  Coulson wasn't touched (and here I'll leave out Winter Soldier spoilers), and he may have been one of the few that wasn't.  That's why he needed him brought back to life so badly.  How they're tying in AoS into the movies, looking back, is actually fairly impressive.  I really want some Coulson back in the movies though.

Same here.... but I get the feeling Agents of Shield isn't as "clever" as we are, and the clairvoyant will end up being something else, and someone will say off-handed "Oh, like the Zola algorithm?" and that'll be as close as a tie-in as we get. Basically, exactly like the Thor tie-in was. "Oh hey, look, this Guy is Asgardian, too." THE END. Next week, more SKYE!

fark Skye.  Seriously, at this point I want someone to put a bullet in her brain and throw her off the plane, her corpse can be the key to finding MH370 and it would be better than any other use of her so far.  When she got shot I was actually glad because I figured it would take her out of the show for at least the rest of the season, but no, instead Kree.  Damn you Kree!

Thankfully Whedon may happily, and hopefully, kill her in some dramatic way that brings the team together.  And then we can forget she ever existed at all.
